I volunteered this past weekend at the first fundraiser for the Cooking with Kids Foundation, of which I am a board member, at the famous Locust Street Farmer’s Market in Walnut Creek, California.
We met a lot of amazing people there including interested parents, grandparents, and kids who want to learn how to cook.
I was offering my book, “A Nutrition Revolution: Uncover the Mysteries of Nutrition” as a thank you gift for donations of $15.00.
During the market, Chef Lynda held cooking demonstrations with several young volunteers. Lynda showed the eager students how to cut fruits and vegetables using a Chef’s knife. All of the kids did great!
We saw some former students of the foundation who offered their words of support.
It was a huge success. We were greeted by many fabulous supporters who are enthusiastic about what we are doing. We were inspired by their support, kind words and generous donations.
